Earn Free Twitch Bits

Learn how to get free twitch bits by taking surveys and watching interactive ads.

Twitch is slowly rolling out a new feature for stream viewers to earn ways to get free bits. I was lucky enough to have the option available and did some testing of how it works.  The system is pretty easy all it takes is around 30 seconds for each interaction ad to play and your bits account will be credited with at least 5 bits.

  • First check for the option if its available to you, it will show up here on the bits popup section.
    Look for it on the top of the popup saying, "Get 5 or more Bits by watching short ads." If you have trouble finding a Twitch Partner that has bits enabled, visit my channel which is enabled for bits at

  • Then click on the button that says Watch AD, usually a short survey starts up

    or a interactive ad that lasts around 30 seconds.

  • Make sure to click on the "I'm done" at the top right corner to successfully get credit and close out the pop up ad.
Once you have bit credit, you can use this on any channel that has cheer bits enabled. If you would like to test it out and send a small tip to my channel here is the link!

How to cheer

Using your newly acquired bits to cheer on a enabled partner stream is also very easy. Just type "cheer" + the number of bits you want to cheer.

1 bit is equal to 1 cent.
100 bits is equal to 1 dollar.

Question: What is the highest bit reward for viewing a advertisement?

Answer: 100

Question: Why am I not getting the option anymore to earn free bits? Its greyed out and has been for many months on in!

Try again later - Get 5 or more Bits by watching short ads

Answer: This has happened to one of my accounts, it doesn't work anymore for many months.  I can only assume there is a bug or the account is flagged to not trigger anymore.  Lucky for me I have a couple of Twitch accounts which work just fine. Try making another Twitch account and see if this issue gets resolved.

General Tip: Ads go thru seasonal changes,  some months advertisement spending is very low while others are really high. This may cause the "Try again later" watch ad box (greyed out) to show up more often.
